In a significant development in the case of a farmer's suicide at an AAP rally here last week, reports claimed on Tuesday that the Delhi Police have been told by two eye-witnesses that Gajendra Singh has instigated into committing suicide.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said he erred by not stopping his speech at a party rally in the national capital where a Rajasthani farmer killed himself, even as he and the AAP reached out to the distraught family.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday said the unfortunate death of Gajendra Singh during the rally at Jantar Mantar has put the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in dock and added that the Arvind Kejriwal-led government should cooperate with the Delhi Police in the investigation of the matter to avoid any conflict.
Following the public suicide of farmer Gajendra Singh in the national capital, his father on Thursday refused to accept Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's apology for continuing with his speech after the incident.
Two days after a farmer from Rajasthan hanged himself from a tree in full public gaze at an AAP rally in Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Friday apologised for not calling off the event and admitted that his making a speech was a "mistake".
Let's blame not just the AAP for Wednesday's farmer suicide but also the Delhi Police, the crowd at the rally, the Narendra Modi government, the Congress, the media and last but not the least, the System!
Zee Media has gained access to the FIR that has been registered by Delhi Police in the Gajendra Singh suicide case. The FIR says that AAP workers and leaders had instigated the farmer. Further, firebrigade vehicles were prevented from reaching the spot.
